Frozen carbon dioxide can be used as a phase-change resist to perform dry lithography of organic thin films, as shown by Matthias E. Bahlke and co-workers on page 6136. The resist sublimes closest to the surface, separating the still-solid resist that in turn lifts off undesired organic material. This new technique will help address the incompatibility of organic semiconductors with traditional photolithography.
